Honda SL70 Scrambler

Hunter from Northern has taken a old stock Honda and transformed it into one heck of a Honda SL70 was first in 1971; it was a small motorcycle a cradle frame and four-speed

According to Todd “I began motorcycles fairly late in I bought my first bike, a Triumph Bonneville T100. new a dealership when I was 40. I have been building and customizing motorized models for as long as I and have a passion for miniature and environments. The horizontal engine are like “scale models” of size bikes – all of the same and challenges to build, but with complexity, and less risk.

My philosophies – To achieve a sort of original look but with equipment. Often, subtle hints of being modernized are and/or desired. I want a who has memories of, or is familiar with a to look a little closer and “Wow, I wish they these like this I owned one”. I aim for a simple of lines and appearance. A balance of and form – instead of one following the

I have done this a few boats, an old camper, old Jeep, and now – 7 mini motorcycles. My next will be a proper sized

This Honda SL70 was as a campground bike to be strapped to the of our camper and used for errands and ADV rides into the mountains. I thinking about how it has a proper and not a pressed steel frame most Honda minis and how I to modify it somehow, even it needed nothing for the purpose it was for. A friend of mine vintage motocross bikes and me on to the ISDT races.

I watched some old video of races from the late and really liked the look and of the vintage scrambler type

The idea behind the build was to a 1971 Honda SL70 to a style with modern I wanted it to have longer and the seat and tank to be more which really changed the look of the little bike.

The started with a 1971 SL70 street legal in CA. The was built from Honda to 124cc with JDM Takegawa custom oil cooler, etc. makes 15 or 16 HP and allows this to keep up with most around town.

The ignition is 12 CDI but I use a 6-volt reg/rec, battery and The engine is also fitted Mikuni VM26-606 and ’80s era Muffler from salvaged three-wheeler with custom baffleing.

The Stock SL70 frame tab for oil cooler mount was welded the head tube, and a relocated for seat/tank mount to level out the and seat, both welded by me. The features stock pan with comfort-… quilts (its a bike that I ride the out of, you know!).

At the front this SL70 Scrambler features, aluminum with black coating and a stock 5″ diameter bucket headlight. The fuel is stock SL70 with indentations filled and smoothed, 5 degrees higher than at the rear. The stock SL70 fender was relocated 4″ aft with bracket to accommodate the longer

While the front was relocated to hugger level and mounted fender stays fabricated by me, fenders were painted to the tank.

The front wheel is a SL70 16″ rim laced to 1974 CB125s hub, with mechanical disc brake and that I chose to add because it, this build would been too easy. The 16″ rear was salvaged to replace stock 14″ rim to stock SL hub. The front and wheel was wrapped in Shinko

Honda SL70 Scrambler features a swingarm from Honda XR100 with ground off and twin gas shocks. The are stock triple clamps SL70 upper pipes CB125s lower housings all internal springs and pistons SL70 but flanged guides and from CB125.

The biggest was the front suspension. Figuring out factory parts were to achieve the look I wanted. includes the near archaeological of the internal caliper mechanism in the disc brake that like it had been recovered a sunken shipwreck. The front end is a cocktail of Honda CB, SL, CL, and CT parts – of them cut to fit.

Another challenge was teaching how to weld.

Last but not least is the job, which was done spray cans. The green is automobile paint from called Kiwi Green and the white is Duplicolor. Green was and put in cans for me by an auto body store. Clear coat is a 2K (2 rattle-can that includes a capsule in the can that is broken and with clear before

The frame is painted Krylon Oil Bronze wich has a unique olive/gold tone to it in the sunlight, clear coated.

From building customizing models to building this Honda SL70 scrambler, has shown us that anything is at any stage of our life!

Special to Todd for putting together the of his build.
